Actor Shahid Kapoor, who is gearing up for two action films to be directed by Prabhu Deva and Bejoy Nambiar each, is hopeful that these films achieve the Rs 100 crore feat.
The 31-year-old will be seen in Prabhu Deva's 'Namak' and in an untitled film by Nambiar of 'Shaitan' fame.
Considering that Prabhu Deva's two directorial ventures - 'Wanted' with Salman Khan and 'Rowdy Rathore' with Akshay Kumar, are part of the Rs 100 crore club, Shahid hopes his films achieve the same feat.
"I don't know about this Rs 100 crore club. It will happen whenever it has to. There is no plan for that. I hope I am able to achieve it (the benchmark his movies have set at the box office). Every actor hopes his movies to do maximum business, but one can't predict this thing," Shahid said.
"It all depends on the taste and preferences of the audience. We are talking about actors, who have been in the industry for 20-22 years, are highly established and also a certain genre (action). Now that genre has more appeal, so bigger the star, bigger the collections," he said.
Personally, Shahid enjoys action-masala films like 'Dabangg', 'Rowdy Rathore' and hence he prefers to do a film of this genre.
"Earlier stars like Mithunda, Amitji used to come out with these kinds of films. But, when we were in our teens, we did not see such films. Now again, we have movies like 'Wanted', 'Rowdy Rathore', 'Dabangg', 'Bodyguard'. When I see these films I find them entertaining. I started enjoying them a lot," Shahid said.
"I also wanted to do those films, come out in high speed, look like a hero and all of that. So, when I am enjoying it as audience, why not do it? It is not just that people want to watch it hence I am doing it... I won't be convinced that way to do a film of that kind," he said.
